Burnout from lipsticks

I spent an hour yesterday, before going to bed, browsing through photos, reviews and swatches of tons of lipsticks. The chain of distraction started from Burberry’s new liquid lip velvet. I learned from my mistake of committing too fast to a lip product that’s been so hyped up, by this I mean Giorgio Armani’s lip magnet, and wanted to read as many reviews as possible for this lipstick before picking one up myself.

Then I realize Sephora run out of the color I want and so I decided to check out Instagram a bit and then go to sleep. This led to another discovery of Hourglass’s new lipstick launch – GIRL Lip Stylo; looked amazing with a great concept, investigated this line a bit.

And this brought me to Sephora where I found I have this SEPHORA favorites give me some nude lip lipstick set and Smashbox’s matte lipstick in my Sephora shopping cart…look further into those lines.

I didn’t fall asleep until 3 am, my brain could not stop thinking about all the lipsticks and the choice I should make, what’s also on my mind was – too many choices is a curse.

Born and raised in China; went to to NYU for College and going to Columbia Business School for Marketing Degree this fall. I have worked in the beauty industry for a year after graduating from college. But my obsession with beauty starts since high school, when I suffered from acnes. That being said, I have tried out a lot of skincare products as well as makeup and I have a lot of opinions on them (also high standards). I hope this is the place you can visit from time to time to find beauty inspirations or just to kill time :)
